Disney Channel viewers may know Peyton List from her role as Emma Ross on two Disney Channel shows — Jessie and BUNK’D — but now the actress is all grown up! Following her Disney days, Peyton went on to nab roles in other TV shows, including Light as a Feather and Cobra Kai.
While she’s super open when it comes to her professional life, Peyton has kept her personal relationships under wraps. Over the years, she’s made relationship headlines with only one public romance. The actress dated Shameless star Cameron Monaghan for nearly two years, from 2017 until their January 2019 split. Throughout their time together, the duo spoke briefly about their relationship in various interviews and posted tons of PDA-filled pictures on social media.
Peyton and Cameron first met while filming the movie Anthem of a Teenage Prophet in 2017. “The whole cast, we all shared a trailer and were all in the same hotel. It was a small town, two and a half hours away from Vancouver, so we all really got to know each other and all became so close,” Peyton recalled during a September 2018 interview with Build Series. “And then sort of in the middle of it, Cameron and I started realizing we liked each other and started dating after.”
At the time, the actress gushed over her “understanding” boyfriend, but in January 2019, E! News broke the news that the pair had officially called it quits. Then, Cameron confirmed the news via social media. “Who knows what the future may bring, but looking forward to seeing all the incredible things that will be coming your way. And, as always, wishing for your happiness,” he wrote in a since-deleted tweet.
When it comes to looking back on past romances, Peyton stays coy about her love life, but she did look back at a love triangle from her past while chatting with People in April 2019.
“I remember reading Twilight and being like ‘Damn, I have to have that,'” she joked at the time. “Two guys are fighting over you, and I feel like when I was growing up, I was like ‘Dang, I gotta be playing the field.’ … So, I definitely feel like I made a love triangle for myself that ended horribly. I remember it, and I was too scared to even kiss anyone at the time because I was a kid. … I was definitely that horrible kid that loved the drama of it.”
